Lummis testifies before the House Natural Resources Committee
June 19, 2012
U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo) testified before the House Natural Resources Committee, Tuesday, at a hearing evaluating what role tax-payer funded lawsuits authorized under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) play in species conservation and protection. Rep. Lummis' own legislation, the Government Litigation and Savings Act (GLSA), seeks to prevent a separate but similar tax-payer funded litigation fund from being misused by agenda-driven environmental groups. The GLSA amends the Equal Access to Justice Act (EAJA) to return it to its legitimate users: seniors, veterans and small businesses.
